One world, one love
two hearts made one
building a single hope
to rekindle the unfulfilled past

Hope to change the fore that was hidden,
never to fall for any destruction

Together we smile into the future,
hidden from feeble-minded eyes

Hold my hand, let’s take a walk tonight my love
over the mountains top and the valley nigh

That we may see the truth in love

Lonely, lonely I was
When love touched my heart
Lovingly, my situation changed

My thoughts so deep, I get carried away
Complete I thought I was without love
Now I know, I was a slave to loneliness

I now feel safe in her embrace
And her smile, awaken my sleeping soul
Your presence has broken me free from lonely's captivity
I’ve been lifted out of my sunken emotions

Slowly
Slowly the buzz
Until it crossed my path

Aimlessly I wait, panting for an opportunity to cling my shaking body to your gracious shadow

Love is beautiful with you

I assumed you have Python installed and want to set up a virtual environment in order to start a project. Below are ways you can get started on different platforms:

Note: myven :- virtual environment name

Windows
Open CMD
Change Directory to your project directory
> cd project_directory
> python -m venv myven
> myven\scripts\activate

Linux/MacOS
Open Terminal /Console
$ sudo apt-get install virtualenv
#creating the virtual environment
$ virtualenv myven
#You can also use a Python interpreter of your choice
$ virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python2.7 myven
$ source myven/bin/activate

Ouch! So you tried creating your venv and then you encountered this error on your terminal 👉 The path python2 (from — python=python) does not exist
Do the following:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install python
When done go back to creating the virtual environment!

To deactivate virtual environment
> deactivate
$ deactivate


Somewhere 23rd April 2018, I launched a campaign to support Destiny Adzaho go to school.

A massive support from family, friends and love ones. At the end of our campaign, we have raised:
1. Mobile Money Donations:-¢1000.50ps
2. GoFundMe:- $150

Special appreciation to Francis Brown for incubating Destiny at his Animation Studio. Francis is helping Destiny unleash his potentials. He is also taking care of Destiny’s welfare including food, accommodation etc.

Appreciation video

Currently Destiny is learning animation at Animaxfyb and eventually work with Francis. Destiny awaits his admission notice to go to school early August or late.

I want to use this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us in this journey.
God richly bless you!
